Oil Sands Issues: In theatre, writing and discussion

Oil sands development is a controversial topic. A unique event to be held at Ottawa’s Carleton University this week will use a combination of formats to draw the audience into the issue.

Starting with a live original theatre production of Highway 63: The Fort Mac Show, Emergency Architect Theatre will explore the diverse voices of Fort McMurray and uncover the stories behind the headlines.
Journalist and best-selling author Andrew Nikiforuk will offer his insights on the oil sands based on two decades of writing about energy and economics, and his latest book Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of a Continent.
Finally, the event will feature a panel discussion with the two co-sponsors: Dr. Jay Drydek from Carleton University’s Centre on Values and Ethics and Janet Keeping, president, Sheldon Chumir Foundation for Ethics in Leadership.
